Yarn Review: Blacker Yarns Brushwork

I am SO excited to be showing you this yarn.  The folk at Blacker Yarns have been back in touch. (No, they don’t sponsor me!) They sent a sample of Brushwork, this years limited edition birthday yarn.  The breeds they’ve included are so intriguing.  Scottish Bowmont is a cross between Saxon Merino and Shetland;  with a touch of Castlemilk Moorit, which gives this years shade card a warm undertone –  probably why I love the colours more than their previous birthday yarns.
